Mepilex® Border Lite - Thin, Self-Adhesive
Mepilex® Border Lite is a thin all-in-one foam dressing for low-exuding wounds. You can use it for chronic wounds and acute secondary healing wounds such as postoperative incisions, traumatic wounds, or sutured wounds.
The low-profile design is conformable, making it an effective wound dressing for difficult-to-dress areas such as feet and toes, hands and fingers.
The design includes Safetac® – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. It's designed to mould softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound 1 – so you can remove it easily without damaging the skin 2 3. That means less pain for your patients 4. You can reposition it with minimal loss of adhesion. Your patients can wear it in the shower.
- Thin and conformable to dress wounds on feet and toes, hands and fingers
